Good grief! if you think Albany is bad then take that and multiply by 10 .. it's that much worse in Warner Robins ESP the schools!! RUN! and run FAST! If schooling is a major concern for you .. then consider north GA .. north east or north west of Atlanta by at least 80 to 100 miles .. fantastic schools .. smaller classes! from elementary on!

Dont believe that Warner Robins is a bad place to live. We have low crime, low unemployment, a good housing market and some of the top ranked schools in the state. Done let one persons low opinion confuse you. Come on u and see the city before you decide.

Fist let me say this: when a state is 48th in the nation for schools, that doesn't speak well in of itself. Thus you're already working against a handicap with what is the best of the worst!

In response to your question. While the city of Warner Robins and the surrounding communities are nice in general, I would not use the Houston County School System as a comparison of the community. From a school system standpoint, you'd be better staying in Albany. Everyone in the school system is in the "tank" with each other. The Board of Education will probably land up being recalled and who knows what will happen to the current Superintendent: will he stay or resign. They are currently involved (school system)in a questionable coverup of a lightning strike that took place during a football game less than two weeks ago that left 13 people injured, one critally. Evidence is currently mounting that the investigation by the Superintendent of Schools was inappropriate and he is under fire for conducting the investigation of the cirumstances leading up to the tragedy of the incident "himself": "does the fox in the hen house sound familiar?"

Let me end with this. If you treasure your children and their safety, pick another school district where your "child(ren) is/are more important than the win/lose of a football game.

North Georgia is your best bet! In the end Houston County Schools "talks a good talk", but not action. The leaders in this school system, are the "best car salesmen", your money can buy!

Good Luck

I used to live in Warner Robins , ga.
It is not bad as big city.
But in Warner Robins is not good place to live because lack of jobs and bunch of dope people live there.
I have never see a small town have bunch of dope there.
I don't understand how those Laws don't see it.

if you want a comment from someone who actually lives in WR, listen and learn. Compared to Macon(20 murders, 1000 robberies etc a year) anywhere is better. WR averages maybe 2murders a year very few robberies a year etc. kids actually graduate from schools here the sports programs are A+ as are the debate teams traffic is pretty hectic but thats because so many people are moving here from surrounding cities to get away from the crime and corruption and dropout rates.all you have to do is try WR, if you don't like it move somewhere else personally, I like it here as does my 6other brothers and sisters!!!!!!!

R.I.P. REGGIE SMITH (KILLED BY WARNER ROBINS POLICE ON 02-06-09). THE COWARDS BEHIND THE BADGE THAT SHOT MY CLOSE FRIEND DID NOTHING CLOSE OF SERVING OR PROTECTING THE INNOCENT!!! REGGIE WAS A VERY GOOD PERSON, AND TO HAVE HIS INNOCENT BLOOD SHED BY THE WARNER ROBINS POLICE IS JUSTICE AT ITS WORST. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS TYPE OF CRAP IS STILL GOING ON.

Low crime???? That's a joke. I thought WR was better than Macon, but I might be mistaken. Our car has been broken into and severely damaged. Do not live here. We are cautious people and this still happened to us.

"Innocent blood" My friend you are delusional. He had a pistol in his hands firing in a crowded parking lot. His drunken actions led to his death. He made the choice to leave the restaurant, go to his car, get a gun, come back, threaten people with that gun, fire that gun. Does this sound like "innocent blood". The mans poor choices got him killed. Do not blame the police for the stupidity ofyour friend. He had numerous chances to change the outcome. His actions caused his death.

Things must have changed a lot since I was there in 68-70. I remeber Warner Robins with a lot of friendly people and do not remember much crime. I remember the chain gangs working the county roads. Maybe that should be brought back. I lived in Bonair and worked at Robins AFB. As I remember there was only like 2 or 3 bars in town and they were all on front street or first street near the Macon hiway.

Nothing here would remind you of what the city looked like in 68-70. The city is now 65,000 people and covers most of North Houston County and a good bit of East Peach County. The area you are talking about, Front Street, basically no longer exists. Those bars were mostly bulldozed along with the motels that were there. What was Bonaire is partly in the city of Warner Robins and the area that is not is just suburb of the city. The growth of the city would shock you.

Thanks Dave. I often thought of going back there, but it sounds like one of those place you want to remember as it was and not as it exists.

You know it is too bad it happened but he should not have had a GUN. You play with fire you are going to get burned.

It wasn't the fact that he had a gun--it was that he used it to threaten innocent bystanders. Carrying a gun conveys an important responsibility--you give up the chance to start a confrontation. You DEFINITELY give up the right to ESCALATE a confrontation. In this situation, if he had walked out, gotten in his car, and gone home, everything would have been fine. Instead, he apparently tried to use a gun to correct what he felt was a wrong against him--and that resulted in the events that followed.

Those of you who carry--please remember that life is not a movie--you can't just pull a gun on anyone who insults you or mistreats you. The weapon is there ONLY to protect the lives of yourself and those around you. Don't endanger yourself, those around you, or our right to carry weapons by using it otherwise.

The man had a pistol and a BAC of 0.48. He chose to point a pistol and threaten lives. He chose to fire off rounds. He chose to risk the lives of innocent bystanders. He chose to be out at 2 in the morning drinking with a women other than his wife. He chose to leave his wife and child at home while he went out and acted like a drunken thug. The truth is the man chose to die a violent death.

If you visit topics all around you see the same thing. No one is happy where they live. I guess if you want to change things then start at home. The grass isn't greener on the other side.

I will interpret that you are saying, "the journey to happiness begins within each person." I will give it to you, you do have some insights, that are worthy of reading. I know, my opinion does not count.

Your interperted correctly! Everyone's opinion counts if the person on the other end is willing to listen and comprehend. If someone is rude to me (on topixs) I always take it in stride. Alot of time something is going on in that persons life to make them act like that. Or, they just want to argue with someone. At that point their opinion doesn't count to me.

I must say, I owe you an apology. You certainly have a much more keen insight and depth, that I initially overlooked in my intial readings of your threads. Are you from West Palm Beach, Fl.?
